Shia LaBeouf: Acting in Indiana Jones was 'My Fault'

Shia LaBeouf: Acting in Indiana Jones was 'My Fault'

Shia LaBeouf has shared his thoughts on his past few blockbusters – and he doesn’t seem to be a fan of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull or Transformers 2!

“You can blame it on the writer and you can blame it on Steven,” Shia, 23, said of the most recent Indy film (via L.A. Times). “But the actor’s job is to make it come alive and make it work, and I couldn’t do it. So that’s my fault. Simple.”

“[Harrison Ford and I had] major discussions,” Shia added. “He wasn’t happy with it either.”

Last week, Shia also said that while he’s excited for Transformers 3, the second film in the series wasn’t his favorite.

“When I saw the second movie, I wasn’t impressed with what we did,” Shia told the AP. “There were some really wild stunts in it, but the heart was gone.”

    He should have told us before we pay for them. They were both pretty bad. Is he going to say how bad his latest movie is in two years time?

    He’s a crappy actor, so of course films that he appears in are going to be ******.

    dude has balls. although, he was honestly the best part of indy 4. paul newman himself could not have made those cgi monkeys work. and who came up with the atrocious “knowledge was their treasure” line??

    So far he’s trash talked two of the films he’s recently appeared in, so how long until Mr LaDouche trash talks Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and Transformers 3?

    Why promote and go through the hoopla if you’re going to bash it later. I’m sure he thinks he is keeping it real but he’s coming off like a ****.

    It’s good for u Shia!
    This cute actor reminds me of Casey Affleck who reveals that’s a big mistake that he’s been in the movie Drowning Mona & Committed.And we all know what happens after–he’s got an oscar nomination.
    It’s really improtant to clear about who you are.

    why did i get so many thumbs down for ma cummint??? I love shia and i just wanted to wish him good luck for t3.I dont know if you peoples knew this but he almost lost his eyesight while filming t2??? BULLIES!!!

    Indiana jones was like a total super cool film. I think shias being too harsh (hard?) on himself. I can’t wait harrison ford to retire and Henry Walton “Mutt Williams” Jones III take over the upcomingfilms. yayyyyyyy

    I respect him for saying this. Indiana really wasn’t good enough in my opinion

    Butter_Fly Says:

    He’s only saying what everyone else is saying. So, he definitely has a lot of guts to say that about himself and his movie(s). But then again, that Indiana sucked, no actor would have made that movie good. I was about to cry leaving the theaters. Totally disappointed.

    I saw the movie and indeed I agree it was CRAP!

    MOVIE actors – there it is the directors fault – who did not demand more from the actors – there are such a thing as re-takes – if Shias acting sucked it is because the director was satisfied with what he got out of Shia

    STAGE actors – they can blame themselves if things suck, because there are no re-takes on stage, it is live

    he’s being honest. hundreds of actors make shiit movies and spend their entire career pretending they were good movies. honestly, c’mon.. shia was the only good part about indi. that movie was trash!!!! bad writing and horrible directing was the problem.

    So basically he ‘s saying Spielberg and the writer did a s*hitty job, but it was up to the actors to make it look good to the audience? S*hit is s*hit, no matter how you try to camouflage it, it still stinks. He’s just trying to make himself look good by taking some of the blame or to sound mature and thoughtful. After all this time, he’s preaching to the choir, everyone knows the movie was crap. I don’t know what would possess him to bring this up now, unless he was specially asked about it; it should have been water under the bridge in any case. Confession is good for the soul? Ha! “Oh, Shia is sooooo honest.” blah blah blah, that indeed is a load of poo poo.
    What really would have been HONEST is to tell the truth about the movie while you’re out promoting it instead of waiting until it pulled in all that money. Oh, my bad; that would have been professional suicide. Make note to self, ‘Tell the truth in a couple of years; the audience will have forgotten how I duped them while promoting this film.’ He knew it was crap then. He lied so everyone would go see it and NOW he decides to be truthful when it doesn’t matter? He’s telling the truth now because tons of people already KNOW it was crap and the movie has made a lot of money which can’t be taken back . Everyone ( the writer and Spielberg) is forgiving when they have their pockets filled with cash. Delayed truth is the same as a lie. Nothing admirable in what he’s doing now. He’s not being real, he’s just a player.

    Shia’s comments on T2 and Indiana Jones 4, IMO, is PROOF that he’s a sellout.

    It amazes me that Shia is a no-talent actor and unattractive, yet he still gets cast in big-budget films.
